She arrived at this Greensboro location for her sunset senior portrait session and was ready for the adventure!
This location is one of my favorites - I know the surroundings, the lighting, the angles I need to shoot here so very well. However, it is also one of my most unconventional locations as well.
Sometimes we meet at lush green garden, parks or areas of abundant nature, and it may be easy to see the vision for the session. However, this location is a little different. It's outside of the box to say the least.
When clients arrive, I am always awaiting the reaction. Many just trust me - even if they can't see the vision. Others I encourage to trust the process and remind them that end result will be beautiful. So why this location? Because it is gorgeous - the sunlight spills in delightfully behind the natural areas and produces a dreamy sun haze that fills these North Carolina fields in a way few other locations offer. The beauty of it is that I know exactly the type of portraits I can capture here and they are amazing. When clients see the end result they literally squeal in delight and amazement!
Truth is- my job is so much more than just clicking the shutter. A significant amount of time is dedicated to scouting unique locations. I actually have a checklist I created to find perfect locations for high school senior portraits, family portraits, baby photography, professional outdoor head shots, commercial photography and more. Each type of photography has different requirements when I am selecting locations. Especially my baby and family locations....so much is involved in location choices - it is a very purposeful part of my plan for many reasons.
